Ve Nadia and Lili Boulanger international Voice-Piano Competition award-winners’ recital
Irina de Baghy, soprano and Delphine Dussaux, piano
Cyrille Dubois, tenor and Tristan Raës, piano.
The concert was co-organised at the Singer-Polignac Foundation, Wednesday 1st December 2010, in memory of the friendship that linked princess Edmond de Polignac and Nadia Boulanger – who organised, programmed and artistically managed numerous concerts and recordings, but also gave her advice in particular on the works commissioned by the princess to famous composers.

Recently published: Nadia Boulanger, Lux æterna
Nadia Boulanger, Lux æterna, for medium voice, violin, cello, harp and organ, Leduc Editions (HA 9 748).
Lux æterna is an adaptation by Nadia Boulanger of her song Cantique, composed at the beginning of 1909 based on a text by Maurice Maeterlinck. The instrumentation is similar to Lili Boulanger’s Pie Jesu, composed in 1918, so that the two works can be performed during the same program.
